As you may know, we are a home schooling family. When I am working, my mother is our teacher, but since I got laid off, I have gotten to really dive in and teach my kiddos and it has been AWESOME!!!! I must admit that we've taken about a month to settle in, but now that we have I am loving it! We're working on writing skills, reading the Anne of Green Gables series, learning about American history, and all kinds of fun science. Our current math book is Using Math to be a Zoo Vet and we all LOVE it! We have a pile of books stacked behind the sofa that has slowly grown into 3 stacks, and much of what I bought is STILL over at my mother's house. Many of our lessons are pulled right off the computer on a daily basis. The latest addition to our curriculum is (drum roll, please) intro to HTML. That's right, Darling Jonathan is teaching our girls how to program! He's started with a brief history of the internet and will be moving on from there. Perhaps even I will learn a thing or two, and you will see a few changes to our blog in the weeks to come!
